posters for Toneelgroep Amsterdam, 1991
It’s only after you have seen the show by Toneelgroep Amsterdam and have seen the poster in the street that you understand the statement I am making. That’s also the experience you have if you see the poster for the next show before seeing the show itself. For theatre posters I usually look for a metaphor for something that is itself a metaphor. Penthesilea is at the head of a group of very feminist women who only tolerate men to procreate. Naturally she falls in love with Zeus, who completely fucks her up – just as naturally. Of course it could not fail, this poster was also defaced.
